Looks like we only use Http/Https, ssh and file Wagon's in archiva -
commons-vfs so far looks like it hits the spot.

I have a copy of Wagon checked out at the moment that works purely with
streams but I ran into a few of issues:
* Wagon's transfer even model relies on being able to pass the File
object that is being transfered to the listener - if its a streaming the
transfer events don't make any sense seeing that the consumer of Wagon
would be doing all the reading/writing
* There are about three different ssh/scp Wagon implementations that can
only deal with files. For example, there is a Wagon provider that will
use the systems scp executable to upload/download files

I really don't see the value in having to ditch Wagon implementations.

I understand your concern - I don't want to add yet another framework to
Archiva. All we need is a simple module to allow us to get files from
remote locations (http and ssh) and from the local file system.

Perfectly :)
